This restaurant is fine, good fine, we tried chicken with coffee sauce and it was really great, we never eat something similar. The plum juice was excellent.

We have tried 2 chicken dishes: grilled with cheese & fried with coffee butter cream. Both were delicious. Then we had a good afogato

I guess this cafe would fall under the category of 'hipster cafe' what with their offering of varieties of coffee from the states in Malaysia. I am not much of a coffee lover and didn't try any and going through the menu, I can't really vouch for how original those varieties are. Having born and bred in Malaysia, I have... More

Had two different laksas here, both were delicious and worth the little extra. It's still very reasonable for the food especially considering that it is a nice place.

It was delicious, The breakfast menu... More

It's a lovely place to duck into for a lovely cup of coffee and a break from all the walking around in the Jonker street. We tried the curry laksa, affogato and the bottled 13 states coffe - all were absolutely delicious.

On a blazing hot day in old town this restaurant/cafe is an oasis for the weary traveller. The food is good, the service excellent and the range of coffee beans amazing - they have their own menu which is probably why the sign outside says '13 States' Coffees'. Sitting on the veranda drinking great coffee whilst being cooled by a... More
